Palisade Group Camp

Area Status: Open
This area is Open
 

This was formerly a very small family campground that has recently been converted into an "overflow" group camp designed for smaller groups (less than 25) who are not able to reserve the Rock Creek Lake Group site.  While not quite as scenic as the Rock Creek Group site, this location is well suited for large family and small organizational group gatherings.
